Glam make up look

Glam make up look

This is my favourite type of post to write about, a make up look. I love to try out different make up looks with different colours or products.

So I decided to write up my ‘glam’ make up look. I like this look because I feel like the colours all match really well together and it all just blends through nicely.

So I hope you enjoy reading …

Before doing any make up, I like to prime my face. For this I first of all, use a moisturiser. It doesn’t matter what moisturiser you use really just whatever one you want. Once that’s all Applied I then use a primer. My favourite primer is the one from benefit. A primer is really good for preparing the skin and making make up last for longer. So I would 100% recommend!

The first thing I apply to my face is the rimmel London match perfection foundation in the shade 100 ivory. I really like this foundation because of its coverage. It gives a full coverage but it doesn’t feel like you’ve got any product on your face. It’s feels really light. Some foundations that give a full coverage can feel really Cakey and I hate that type of feeling. Especially because it’s on my face. I like to blend this out with a normal beauty blender, you can pretty much get these from any where.

Then I put on my concealer. I use the Rimmel wake me up concealer. I really like how this brightens up the skin and conceals redness but I feel like it doesn’t do much for dark circles. So if any of you have any recommendations for good concealers for dark circles, let me know ! 🙂 Oh, and I also like to blend this with a beauty blender.

I like to set all of that with my powder. The powder I use is the benefit hello flawless powder in the shade ivory. I don’t  use a lot, just a small bit to blend everything out. And for this I use one of my unicorn brushes. Which can I just say are like the best things to ever be invented. I actually got these for a Christmas present so I don’t know where there’re from exactly but I’m sure they won’t be that hard to find if you want some!

After that’s all done, I like to contour. For my contour I use the revolution London pallet of powdered contour. I much prefer a powdered contour to a creamy one. I feel like it’s much easier to blend. I put this on my cheek bones, forehead, chin and sides of my nose. And to apply this I use 2 different brushes. The small one and the slightly angled unicorn brush. I’ll put a picture of them below.

Then on my cheeks, on top of the coontour, I put a little bit of bronzer on just to give a bit more definition. I like to use the Rimmel London one in Shade 022 sun bronze. And to apply this I just use a basic puffy brush. 6795D944-FDC7-4595-9C43-4DDE70E9DB50

Then i like to do my brows. For my brows I use the benefit ka-brow kit in shade 03. And I don’t actually use the brush it comes with, instead I use a slightly thicker angled brush, which I’ll add into the picture below. I feel like the brush it comes with is quite slim and narrow so it’s hard to get the exact shape you want. I just find it much easier to do that with a slightly bigger brush. 57014407-AD76-4BED-AE64-1E8757D7F10C

One the brows are done, I like to do my eyes. This is my favourite part without a doubt! I start with eyeshadow. For this look I like use use a few different pallets. I start with the Mäc burgundy times nine pallet. In the crease of my eyelid I use the shade in the middle on the top row.               Once that’s blended out in the crease, I use the shade 1st on the bottom line just to add some definition. Basically I put this in the outer corner of my eye, still in the crease. By doing this it just makes your eyes look so much bigger.

Then on the actual eyelid, I use the pinky shimmer shade from the revolution pallet. I love how this blends with the other colours. It’s super glittery as well which is a bonus!

Then on the bottom lash line, I use the shade ‘lumbré’ from the urban decay heat pallet. To apply this I use a thin angled brush. And for the rest of the eyeshadow I just use the brush that comes with the heat pallet. A08E16CC-B09E-468A-B0C1-54E642B61761C810F4AD-724D-4B77-817F-5F29595B2F63

To highlight the inner corner of the eye I use the first shade in the Mac pallet. 29D453AE-777E-4DA2-AE30-720695DFF799

For eye liner I use rimmels exaggerate eyeliner in shade 001 100% black.

For eyelashes I really like to use false ones. And for this look I actually like to use these bambi lashes from primark. There only £2!! CE5ABDC7-3AA9-4FE9-BAA5-9EEADFB28A15

And for the bottom lashes I use this ted baker mascara. It came in a gift set for Christmas so I don’t know if you can buy it separately or not. If you know, let me know!!

Then for my highlight I use 2 different ones. On my Cupid’s bow, brown bone, chin and nose I use Kylies highlight ‘kylighter’ in the shade French vanilla. Then on my cheeks I use this revolution London one. Which is a rose Gold sort of colour. Personally, I really like it. And to apply this I use the brushes in the picture below…

lastly, I do my lipstick. For this specific look I use the Kylie lip kit in the shade Leo. I love this colour so much! Although I do find that it dries my lips out a bit and none of her other kits do that to me. So that’s a bit strange. But I still love the colour!

 

And that is my ‘Glam make up look’! I hope you all enjoyed this post!

Exciting news…

Exciting news…

I can’t believe how long it’s been since my last post. Like I actually can’t, it’s crazy!

I feel like the break I had from the blog was for the better. I felt like my posts were becoming a little bit boring and I just felt like they kept repeating themselves. So hopefully now after a break I can up my content and get back into it. Fingers crossed.

My goal is going to be to post at least twice a week. So let me know what types of blogs you’d like to see in the comments!!

Anyway, to the exciting news………..

Im going to hopefully be starting up my own little business in make up box’s! The idea is to set up a monthly subscription to a box of make up (which is different every month). When I’ve sorted all the details I’ll do a whole blog post explaining everything and that. But it’s in early stages at the Minuit.

So please let me know in the comments if that’s something you’d be interested in, and if you are interested, any products you’d like to see in it !!

Bye for now ,

Cuba – day 2

Cuba – day 2

Okay so we landed in Cuba yesterday afternoon, and i must admit when we saw the airport I got a little bit worried because it looked so small and tiny. But it was alright. We got through quickly and the transport to the hotel didn’t take to long so that was lucky. I’ve got to admit though when we arrived in the hotel yesterday i was knackered, I think it was because of the 5 hour time difference, its actually really hard to get use too! But after a quick nap we went down into the buffet restaurant and grabbed some dinner.I’m not a huge fan of buffets because i much prefer a sit down meal when you all eat at the same time but hey ho! There are about 5 al’acart restaurants here though so thats good.

When we arrived we went into this meeting/conference type room where we were given welcome drinks and had a little show put on for us. Which was cool to watch. Then we went on the go to our rooms. The thing is me and my family have had a bit of bad luck with our rooms on holiday, every year there is always something wrong with the first room they give us. So cue holiday drama number 1…

We arrived in our rooms which i’ve got to admit at first glance were lovely! It was until you looked closer you could see what was wrong with it. First there were mosquitos everywhere! It was gross. There were stains all over the room and beds, and they gave a little camp bed to sleep on which isn’t even suitable for a 6 year old. Not great… And to top things of next door was a loud disco party that goes on every night until at least 2 am. Not really what you want when your jet lagged!

So the next day (today) we went down the reception to see our rep. And i really do feel sorry for that poor women because she must have been getting 23425 million complaints a day, there were queues of people who wanted to see her. But she was really helpful, she got us new rooms to go look at, which honestly weren’t the best but at least i had a double sofa bed to sleep on, so we took it! They were closer to the pool area as well so thats a bonus.

So thats what we were up to yesterday and this morning. But we have just spent the afternoon sitting in the sun by the pool and getting a coffee.

In the evening we went to a ‘special meal’ that our holiday company put on for us. Which lets just say was a complete and utter disaster. Long story short they ended up running out of food and refused to cook more. Not the best start to our holiday! We ended up eating in the buffet which was rammed with people.  And to top it all of when we went back to the room there was a disgusting smell coming from outside and we couldn’t figure out what it was. Thats when we aunty (who works for a water company), who’s room was next to ours told us that it was sewage! Ewww. But i’ll let you know what happens about that tomorrow.

*Im actually convinced that this is a literal holiday nightmare. I mean its already full of disaster and we are only on day 2!

But trust me it gets wayyyy worse….

Number 7 mascara review

Number 7 mascara review

I know that I promised a shopping haul and i will post that in the next few days. I just need to take a few more pictures for it. So today I decided on doing a review on my number 7 mascaras. Give this post a like if you enjoyed it!

Now they didn’t actually come as a set of 2 but thats how i like to use them. One of them is called Lovely lashes, for glossy natural volume. And the other is the midnight lash, for spectacular volume.

The Lovely lash one i use on my lower lashes because i prefer a soft natural look for them. And then the midnight lash one on my upper lashes. Sometimes I use both on my upper lashes, it just depends on the look. And can I just say that the wand for this one has to be my favourite.

I got them both in my beauty advent calendar last year. But the individual price for them is around £12 each.  I would defiantly recommend them.

The only problem with the Midnight lash one is that it’s a little bit clumpy. So i take a eyebrow brush to get the lumps out. I know that it sound weird but trust me, it does the job!

*Sorry that the images are from my other make up post. I don’t have the products with me to take new pictures!

I’ll leave a link here for the Midnight lash and the Lovely lashes mascaras incase you want to go and buy them.

Don’t forget to check back tomorrow for another post!

Make up Review

Make up Review

Hello everyone,

*I feel like i need to come up something different to ‘hello everyone’ i swear that i use it in every blog!

So at the weekend i went into a benefit make up store and brought some new make up. I didn’t get that much just because christmas is coming up and i did ask for some then. But because i got some money for my birthday i thought that i’d go and buy a few little things.

The first thing i got was this foundation in the shade ivory. I figured that its better to spend a little bit more money on a foundation so that you know its a good quality one. I think this was around £18 but I’m not 100% sure. This foundation is really good. It gives a great coverage and blends really easily. Not only that but it doesn’t feel like your wearing any make up. With some foundations they can feel really cakey and you can feel them clogging up your skin, if that makes any sense, but this one doesn’t.img_6729

Then i also brought this powder to set my foundation. This was around £18 too. Personally i really like powder because you can wear it on its own to provide a good coverage to you can put it over foundation to set it and give more coverage. Again like with the foundation some powders can feel really cloggy but this one is alright. This powder came with a brush and sponge to put it one with. I must admit though i dont know if its really worth the whole £20 but is alright. Again i got this in ivory.img_6728

The last thing i got was this eye brow pencil. And i think it was around the £15 mark. I got it in shade 3. Now my brows are a really strange shape which makes them really hard to fill in or shape, so apparently this pencil was good for people who find it quiet hard to fill in their brows. So therefore i thought well i might as well give it ago.  Its not very pigmented but it does the job. It is really easy to use so i’ll give it that! I’ll put in a picture in to show the shade. The brush at the end is really useful though as it pushes the colour through the brow!img_6730

 

So thats what i got on my little trip to befit overall i think all the products are good but  are a little pricey. Let me know in the comments your favourite make up brand! And don’t forget to come back tomorrow for another post.

Bye for now,

Lots of love,
